The Rural-Urban Solidarity Project

A Kentucky-wide film series documenting widespread racial justice actions of rural Kentuckians.

The Rural-Urban Solidarity Project is a film series documenting the widespread racial justice actions of rural Kentuckians in response to the killing of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, and celebrating the legacy of Black Kentuckians across the state. With films from Covington, Harlan, Murray, and Paducah, the project hopes to uplift these stories and inspire greater connection, solidarity, and interdependence across generations + institutions in Kentucky.

The films premiered in-person in Covington, Harlan County, and Paducah on August 5, 2023 and premiered virtually on August 8, 2023. Learn more about the films and the producers at Watch the August 8 panel with producers below.

The Rural-Urban Exchange began in Kentucky in 2014, founded in partnership with Art of the Rural and Appalshop.
